Have you tried the exciting new range of Efectiv Whey Protein flavours yet? A firm favourite has to be Peanut Butter Cup. The intense, nutty flavour mixes brilliantly as a shake, into yoghurt or as per this recipe, into warm oats. Of course, it would be wrong to not top with a Reese's and more peanut butter for a devilishly indulgent, high-protein bowl!
- 1 scoop (35g) organic rolled oats
- 1 tbsp (10g) chia seeds
- 1 medium (80g) carrot, grated
- 1 scoop (30g) Efectiv whey Peanut Butter Cup protein powder
- 1 large Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
- 20g smooth peanut butter
- Into a saucepan add the grated carrot, scoop of oats and the chia seeds. Cover with hot water from the kettle. I prefer to do this the night before training, covering the pan with a lid and leaving the ingredients to soak up the water and plump up overnight. It isn't essential but it makes the texture extra creamy and thick!
- Warm up on the hob, stirring frequently and adding in a splash more hot water if required. The consistency should be thick and fluffy.
- Remove from the heat and add in the scoop of protein powder, stirring until fully combined. Add another splash of water if required to get a texture you're happy with... but make sure it's not too watery - nobody likes sloppy oats! You can add any flavour protein powder you like but for a carrot cake vibe my favourites are salted caramel, cinnamon, vanilla or chocolate.
- Transfer to a bowl and top with the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and 20g of peanut butter. Placing on the warm oats and leaving it for a few minutes will cause the chocolate and nut butter to melt, making a luxuriant and decadently delicious high protein treat!
